I know we can use any box for bento, and that's what I've been doing the few I have done, but with school starting I know my sont will toss it in a backpack and everything will shift so I'm looking for stackables. All I am finding is either in the 20 dollar range and/or necessitates me paying even more for imported shipping. I like the idea of the narrow ones, but I'm searching hopelessly for stores that even sell bento supplies around here.
I'd also like to get a few of the cuter items. More colorful silicone cups (I only have six so I normally use paper cups unless it's watery for now), smaller ones than I have, a couple egg molds for the egg lovers in the house, and veggie cutters to convince the kids to try the veggies (they seem to think they are evil), also the tiny sauce bottles would be nice. I'd like to get it all from the same place if at all possible instead of using different vendors like I would on ebay and yet if I import now it may not be here in time for the start of the new school year.
Oh. I'm a cheapskate by necessity too.
I probably am asking too much. Heck I may just put this out here, Harriburg/Reading PA area is where I live. Anyone have ideas of stores that sell bento goods around there?
Just the new girl around here looking for some lunch ideas.
